PAGE TEN ALTON EVENING TELEGfcAPH THURSDAY, JULY 3,1958 Reds Blank Braves; Yank Rookie Hurler Wins in First Start Giants Take 5-2 Triumph Over Chicago By ED WII.K8 Awoclafed Press Sports Writer You can file Brooks Lawrence in that thin folder titled "Bad Deals by Frank Lane." The big right-hander, plucked from the minors by Cincinnati after the St. Louis Cardinals had given up on him, has been the ace of the Redleg pitching staff since, running up a 41-26 record in 2^4 seasons. Lawrence won his fifth in a row, all complete games, Wednesday night with a four-hitter that returned the Redlegs to fourth place in the National League with a 1-0 decision over first place Milwaukee. The Braves' lead was trimmed to three games again over St Louis arid San Francisco as the third place Giants defeated the Chicago Cubs 5-2 in the only other NL game scheduled. Lawrence-, 33, the Bull of the Cardinal bullpen when he had a 15-6 record in 1954, was traded to the Reds by Lane, then genera manager for the Cards, for pitcher Jackie Collum in January, 1956 He promptly won 19 for the Red legs in their near-miss pennant rush of '56. Last year he was 16-13, Now he's 6-3 with two shutouts, giving up just one hit after the third Inning at Milwaukee in a dandy duel with young Joey Jay, who 'lost with a five-hitter. The Braves beat the Reds 1-0 Tuesday night on Lew Burdette's eight-hitter. Jay is now 1-3 with his third consecutive defeat. The Giants moved within .001 of a percentage point of the .Cardinals as Dick Drott lost his fifth in a row for a 3-6 record. Stu Miller won it for a 2-4 record.

Yankees Keep AmericanLoop AttendanceUp By BEN OLAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — It's time to get the turnstiles fully manned when the New York Yankees hit the road. The league leaders are saving he American League, which has hauled in more than a million customers less than the National 'rom making even a poorer attendance showing. Some folks figure the Yanks' pennant runaway is the .reason for ;he junior circuit's 200,000 attendance decline from last season. But who knows what the deficit would be if the magic name of the Yankees didn't pack 'em in at Detroit, Kansas City, Boston, Baltimore, Cleveland, Chicago and Washington? An Associated Press survey today • h o we d the Yanks have played before 828,593 fans on the road. That's 28 per cent of the 2,931,220 the AL has drawn outside Yankee Stadium. Even more striking are the statistics of the Yankees compared with the seven other American League clubs. In Detroit, for example, Casey Stengel's crew has appeared six times for a total of 193,544 paid. That's an average of 32,257 an appearance. The other six teams are averaging 15,454 at Detroit. The Yanks have drawn 137,248 in five showings in Kansas City for an Average of 27,450. The Athletics are averaging 10,508 against the rest. The figures are even more revealing in Chicago and Cleveland. A total of 121,616 have seen New York play in the White Sox' Corn iskey Park. That breaks down to an average of 24,323 for five appearances. Against the other clubs, the Sox average is a mere 9,438. In Cleveland, where the capacity is more than 73,000, the Yanks have hauled in 101,214 in four showings for an average of 25,303. The Indians are drawing an average of only 7,212 against the six other teams. Except at Baltimore, the Yanks also have been the visiting team attendance League cities this season.

Speaking was Eddie Mafuz, fiery little manager of Cub's Isaac Logart. Mafuz was indignant over Wednesday night's upset split decision in favor' of hometowner Don Jordan. The 10-round Hollywood Legion j Stadium bout was nationally televised. "This injustice may rob us of a chance to get a shot at Virgil Akins' welterweight crown," Mafuz said in a dressing room interview. "It gives them a chance to duck Logart." 1 The 25-year-old Cuban is the No. 1 challenger for the welterweight championship. There were no knockdowns and Logart did what damage was done. The 23-year-old Jordan suffered a bloody nose in the first round and a cut eyelid in the third. Logart, a 1-2 favorite, went in front with a powerful body attack and occasional left hooks to tiie face. Jordan appeared to tire in the ninth, but he landed a solid right to the head and a questionable blow to the body. Logart indicated it was a foul but the referee took no notice. Referee Mushy Callahan and judge George Thomas scored it for Jordan, 95-94 and 97-95, respectively. Judge George Latka had it 97-93 for Logart. The decision was received with mingled hoots and cheers. Logart's camp was dismayed and even Jordan seemed surprised. He later said .he thought he had won the fight. Jordan weighed 141, Logart 146%.

In the 25 1-3 innings he worked, he was so clobbered his earned-run average was 5.33"I talked this over with Frank Lane and Joe Gordon in Chicago this week," Lem said Wednesday night. "So it wasn't any shocker to me." With his 38th birthday coming up in September, Lemon appears to be through.
